friend calls me up and he's about to attempt to eat the worlds biggest burger.

You get about 2 hours to eat it. If you finish it within that time, you get the meal for free and in the hall of fame. You have to sign a piece of paper I guess to avoid health sues or you die.

Would you ever eat that? I don't think I would ever do it. Way too unhealthy.

When I worked out west we had that at our restaurant only it was hmm, something like a 52 ounce steak. Yuck. How the heck does your body function after that???

They had that on the travel channel's "Man vs Food" recently. It is all about one guy trying to go around doing all the major food challenges in the US. I believe that burger, if it is at the same place, is 8 pounds (3.6kg). He couldn't finish it.

He also did the challenge out west that was, i believe, a 72oz steak, a large salad, a lot of potatoes, and a shrimp cocktail and finished it all within an hour.



I couldn't do it.

In my younger years I use to put away a lot of food. But now in my old age I had developed a lot of stomach problems & have to take it easy. I'd love to eat a hamburger that size but I would take much longer than 2 hours -- more like two days.

If I'd just been out on the lash and it wasn't chemically enhanced processed s**t I'd probably have a crack at it. But like Rani says - I don't really envy the person who has to go in the bathroom afterwards..
